Darker, deeper, and more textured than our previous bottles. Great lively sour dark cherry nose with vivid flowers and savory earth. The palate is juicy and filled with cool mixed berries, anise, and savory tomato. Finishing tart red berry acidity drives ending mushroom, rhubarb, and dried herbs. A great bottle, and again fantastic with roasted chicken and fresh beans. Drink or Hold.
Another bottle, another good experience. Similar to the bottle I tasted in February, but I poured this for my parents and some friends during dinner. Everyone seemed to like the crispness of the wine, the earthy and animal flavors, and the everpresence of the acid. Overall, such a nice break from tannic, overextracted wines, this is so light and fresh, yet full of flavor.
Similar flavor profile to our previous note, however the pronounced acidity in this bottle bordered on being austere. As such it was a bit less enjoyable on its own, but went wonderfully with roasted chicken. Love the freshness in this wine, and will open the last bottle in a few years.
Another Saturday at Weygandt (Weygandt Wines - Washington, D.C.): Rob and Meg's 10/18/2012 tasting note nailed this wine. I love the acid and the softness of this 60/40 gamay-pinot blend, but the earthy, spicy, rhubarb and bacon fat flavors are delicious. For some reason, this wine makes me crave German food. Others at the tasting said this was on it's way to the bottom of the hill, and while I may a bit more optimistic, it should probably be enjoyed in the near-term.
